“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ. For it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” Rom. 1:16

 The gospel is the best message in the world.  Not everyone agrees, some say it is excessive to say so and some say it is fiction.  But those who believe receive the power of God.  The gospel is about the power of God, not human power or wisdom.  Not human aspirations and ambitions.

“For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith. As it is written, “The just shall live by faith.” Rom. 1:17

 God’s righteousness, not human imperfect righteousness, is revealed in the gospel.  The punishment fell on Jesus and now every person who believes in Jesus, is made righteous.  This means an end to all human endeavors, trying to please God and make oneself better.  The gospel is, right now, the power of God, not human power, for salvation to everyone who believes.  You can believe in Jesus, you are created to believe.  Then you will be saved and you can count on the power of God in your life.  God will help you.  Leave human power and righteousness and receive the power of God and the righteousness of God, by grace through faith.

It all starts with believing and continuing to believe, in the best message in the world – the gospel of Christ. 

 God bless you.
